take the time to enter a apprenticeship program. it won't guarauntee a job, but you will have a good basic idea, and knowledge of your craft. take on as many side jobs as possible. not only will you get experience with the brush, you'll pocket a few bucks. no job is too small. money=money. there are small companies/individuals who have workshops on faux finishes and the like. it may cost quite a few bucks, but it may give you a leg up. if this is your choice for employemnt, all i can say is, be persistent, hustle, don't give up. there are alot of down times. probably too many. but if you stay with it, do siders, it can work. just stay with it. good luck!

you first must able to prep, second, you must be very conscious of incomplete work that you see, you know if you see it the customer see it as well. third, must think, act, talk, and work like a professional, and clean up
